We all have heard not-so-good stories about getting US Visas and how difficult it is. However, last week, we applied for the girls’ US Visas (non-immigrant) and it was hassle-free! Here’s a walk-through of our application process.
Payment of application fee
We paid the $160 fee (Php 7680) applicable to the Visa type we were applying for, through BPI online. I had to click on the link for online paying through BPI and took note of the reference number provided. Please note that for each individual, you need to get a number. You should not pay a lump sum as the reference number for each applicant is required before you can schedule. In our case since both girls and Michael are applying, we had to pay 3 application fees separately.
It was very easy to pay, enroll the biller (US VISA) with the reference number, and pay the fee. Please just do remember to print out a proof of payment as this may be requested from you- in our case I printed out the screenshot of the confirmation and also the email confirmation from BPI.
